James 1:22-25

22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.

Make it S.W.E.E.T.






MONDAY: Take the Scripture passage & simply read it over! God wants to speak to you so slow down, paying attention to what gets your attention. If something doesn’t get your attention right away, read it over until something does, asking God to bring something to your attention. We suggest copying the passage in your journal as part of this day’s read over.

TUESDAY: Take your journal and start to Write! Begin with the raw thought that got your attention yesterday and chase it. Get messy! You’re not writing an essay. Remember thoughts tend to disentangle themselves when they pass through the fingertips. Just start writing even if it feels a little forced at first. It will come!

WEDNESDAY: Engage in conversation with others about your thoughts from the week and watch the insights multiply as the interaction draws out still more. Don’t keep the richness to yourself! Pass it on!

THURSDAY: Express to God your thoughts about the things you are learning this week. Thank Him for insights gained! Share with Him your desire for these truths to change you and make you more like Jesus! Ask Him to move them from your head to your heart!

FRIDAY: Identify your Takeaway! The real sweetness of God’s Word gets released into our lives when we allow what we learned this week to impact the way we think, feel, act and speak! With a week’s worth of momentum built up, be prepared for impact!
